Most likley problem is the door is not closing properly or the door latch switch is faulty. This means the dishwasher controller is not getting the right signal before commencing the wash cycle.
Need to check the closure of the latch. If this is ok then replace the door switch.
View the door panel diagram, schematics and parts in this site http://spares.bigwarehouse.com.au/index.php?cPath=24759_25855_26296&sort=2a&page=1
Take off the door panel and check to see if the linkakge from the outer handle to the latch has become disconnected and for the closing problem lube the latch well more than likely its not opening fully when you pull the door open so when you go to close it it pushes the latch closed before the actual bar its suppose to latch to enters the latch
LG has issued a service bulletin about this problem. You need to call LG or the ratailer you bought it from and tell them what's going on...the entire cost of the repair (parts and labor) should be covered....at least it was the last time I did one for a customer.
Seems as though your door latch may have closed without having the door closed.
1. Use a screw driver of any kind to simulate the door latch pin. Stick this into the latch and put a small amount of tension on the latch pulling it to the inside of the car and actuate the door handle.
What you are trying to do is get the latch to move to it open door position. It might help to look at one of the other doors latches with the door open so you can better see this demonstrated and compare with your malfunctioning door.
If this all works out - make sure you take the time to lubricate the door latch assembly to prevent future problems of this sort..
You definitely need to download the Service Manual. You can start the check program by pressing Upper Only+Time Delay+Power, but you need to know the sequence to be followed to check each component. I did this to fix my dishwasher (heater unit was deffective).
I recommend you to search the internet for the Service Manual (you can find it for download) and run the program.
Good luck !
If you can pull the freezer drawer out, check to see if there is anything on the floor of the freezer. You can also try reinstalling the drawer. When you take the drawer out make sure that the spring loaded door catches on the sides are facing towards you. That is if it has any.
The LG LDS 5811 and all models that start with 'LDF" do not have a door latch. They do have a child lock _but_ that feature does not lock the door closed or open, it just locks the controls so the DW can not be turned on or settings changed.
So, please look at the right side edge of the opened door and post the model # back here.
The IE is telling you it is not getting enough water. Could be your water pressure is low. Check to make sure the there is not a build up of grime, or calcium deposits in the water hose, and at the valve.
The other thing is if your unit is an older one, prior to mar 07, you may have broken wires in the door. Remove the door panel and look for any wires that are stuck in the insulation. The sensor wires are thin and gray in colour. Splice the wires and put some of the white insulation in between the wires and the door so it cannot happen again.
Broken wires can be hard to find if the break is not all the way through.
